Justice in short, let it become the

—Abraham Lincoln.
Tomorrow throughout Christendom
will be commemorated an event that
is without parallel because it con
cerned One who occupied a position
in the world which no other hail.
The event was the culmination of
a tragedy enacted three days before,
upon the horrors of which the sun re
fused to shine, and while the life of
the lowly Mazarine went out on the
rugged cross planted on the top of
Golgotha, nature shuddered in the
throes of a mighty earthquake.
When the veil was rent asunder the
puny hand of man in the great re
ligious tragedy was stayed and Om
nipotence became the power which
was forever to establish the claim of
Christ to be the Son of God.
Had it been possible for the Roman
soldiers and the Roman governor to
have closed the events concerning
Christ with his death on the cross,
there would have been abundant room
for questioning His divinity.
The three days between the Friday
of his death "and the Sunday of resur
rection proved the claim which he
had put forth that He was indeed the
Son of God.
The world has always been familiar
with death. It was the inevitable end
of man so far as bis earthly career
•was concerned. The learned men had
tried to fathom the Unknown Beyond
without avail.
The human mind had staggered at
the Uncertainty and while there had
been in the religion of the Jews a line
«f inspired prophecy which had point
ed out the way, the resurrection of
the dead was not generally believed.
It remained for .Christ in carrying
out the great plan of redemption to
demonstrate its truth.
Even His followers had some doubts
of the matter, for the women who
first discovered that the body had
arisen, came to the tomb for other
purposes than to test this matter.
When the bands which sealed the
tomb were broken and He who for
three days had lain within its gloomy
oonfines came forth in the flesh and
was again seen of men, there could
be no doubt that the resurrection of
the dead were indeed a reality.
While seraphic music floating out
in the stillness of the night over the
Judean hills had proclaimed the birth
of the Messiah, and while his teach
ings during the three short years of
his ministry had been full to over
flowing with the power of one whose
Inspiration must have been above
men, the world would not have be
lieved on him save by the unanswer
able argument of his resurrection.
By his death the religious history
of the world has been changed at
least. Whether he came as the cul
mination of the great religious sys
tem that had been built up in the
Jewish nation and had largely domin
ated the religion of the ancient world
and left its indellible stamp upon the
modern, or whether he was foreign
to that religion is a matter upon which
men and people have honestly dif

Is patent that the nations and people

form the religion of the Nazarine.

brought into juxtaposition with west
ern civilization. Japan may have
adopted the benefits of Christianity
without adopting the religion.
What wrongs may have been done,
what outrages committed in the name
of Christian truth, the pages of his
tory tell. Sad it is that blood has
flowed like rivulets after rain: that
tortures sickening to contemplate and
horrible to behold, have disgraced the
action of its artificial devotee. But
no man for a moment pictures the
Master as he sat in the shade of the
trees on the sloping hillside with his
devoted followers about him, and
reads the beautiful beautitudes that
fell from his lips can believe that the
religion he thus thought was that of
blood and strife and vengeance.
It is well then, that when fashion's
parade is engrossing the minds of men
and women tomorrow, to Jet the mind
go back to what the religion which
was fully proven by the resurrection
of Christ really was.
Preachment against our customs
which effect only' the outward appear
ance and not the innermost self is
baseless and absurd.
Sins which are such only because
of the declarations of men are not
sins. The evils of the world are
magnified. If the religion of Christ
be taken for the measure, there are
many more good people in the world
today than evil, and life is not half
so dark as same would have us be

The railroads take considerable of

The settling of a new country by
people from the older states is alto
gether a matter of education.
It is one of the principles of domes
tic economy that as a country becomes
older and consequently more densely
populated, the individual battle of life
becomes more strenuous and the
chances of success correspondingly
But while this is true as an econo
mical proposition, the associations of
time and place become so deeper in
the seated mind and more difficult to
Thus is presented a condition of
congested opportunities that grow less
hopeful every year, on the one hand,
urging the individual to get away and
not only leave more room for his
neighbors, but to secure better oppor
tunities in the parts of the country
where competition is less severe and
the opportunities greater, and on the
other hand all the hallowed associations
that have been developed through hall
a lifetime, with the memory of the old
home and old friends, which must be
Often the latter outweigh the for

the losses which inevitably follow.
It is hardly to be wondered at that
it requires more than the asking to
secure the consent of the man with
a family to give up all that he has
known in life and seek new condi
tions in a strange land.
This explains why it has taken
years to educate the people of the
older states, especially those having
family ties, to the point of making a
The wonderful fertility of the soil,

The statements which at first were
accepted only with several grains of
salt, finally created a curiosity, and
this curiosity led to inquiry. The
truth became apparent upon an in

scale in which the advantages of emi
gration had been placed against the
sentiment now remaining became the

It is estimated that refore the pres

Republicans throughout the state
should make no mistake about the
professed intentions of the demo-in
surgents. Their purpose is plain. It
is to disrupt the party on a false is
sue. If they can succeed in planting
the poison of prejudice in the minds
of enough people they hope by this
means to capture the uext republican
state convention. If they fall—and
they will fail—then thc-y will bolt and
support the ticket put up by the demo
crats. Let them bolt. They have
never been right anyway, and the
sooner they "flock by themselves" the
belter. Their professions in favor of
"good government" are not sincere.
The kind of good government they be
lieve in is the one that will put them
into power. There is no state in the
union that has had better, cleaner or
more efficient government than North
Dakota. This is confirmed by the fact
that the demo-insurgent crew are om
inously silent on that point. They
prefer to circulate slanders and false
hoods against those who are in power
and who have been of everlasting
service to North Dakota and the coun

The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast
A feature of the performance at
tracting special interest is the ballet
of "The Four seasons," a synopsis of
which will doubtless prove interest
ing. The fairy queen conjures up a
dream of the year for the entertain
ment of the sleeping Princess Beauty.
In this masterpiece tf spectacle, there
are five great dissolving scenes, rep
resenting Spring, Summer, Autumn
and Winter, with intermediate effects
typifying the notable days in the cal
endar. The first depicts an English
landscape in delicate greens and
browns, with a glimpse of a church,
farmers in the fields and budding
trees another spring scene follows
with the sheep browsing on the hill
side, and the hawthorne trees, a mass
of pink and white bloom. Summer
has its vivid roses with a charming
bit of country and lake, and this gives
place to an autumn scene bordered
with scarlet popies and another deep
tinged flower of fall, showing the
moon and sky through a mass of gold
and brown foliage. Then comes the
whiteness of snow, with the spiked
green leaves and red berries of the
holly. As these superb scenes melt

Uncle Tern's Cabin.
Stetson's big production of "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" will appear at the Met

has been organized this season In a.
manner that will make It far superior
to any previous production ever seen
here. Special attention has iM
given to the staging of the piece and
scenery, faithfinly portrays several
scenes of southern life during ante
bellum days in the far south. A large:
number of genuine colored people,
who introduce cake-walks, buck
dancing, southern jubilee singing and
funny scenes- in the cotton fields add
materially to the production. Blisses

ness and E. A. Shook are the two
Marks, and Stetson's original "Uncle
Tom," Mr. Fred Bennett, will also be
in the cast. Of late years the stage
has been deluged by so many cheap
"Uncle Tom's" companies that the
public has been led to regard an an
nouncement of its production with a
great deal of distrust. Mr. Loe W.
Washburn, the manager of this com
pany, has, however, succeeded in or
ganizing a cast composed of specially
selected players, chosen for their
adaptability for parts assigned them,
and has received his reward in the
generous patronage of the public and
praise from the press. It is doubtful
if "Uncle Tom" even when a novelty
and new to the stage, ever received
the attention so liberally bestowed up
on it as now during this sumptuous
revival. A street parade will be given
that is said to delight every juvenile
spectator beyond quetsion.
